GEF: The Art of Knowledge Exchange: A Results-Focused Planning Guide for the GEF Partnership
The GEF has released a new publication titled “The Art of Knowledge Exchange: A Results-Focused Planning Guide for the GEF Partnership.” This publication, which builds on an earlier publication by the World Bank Group, serves as both a guidebook and a toolkit for enhancing knowledge exchange at the national, regional, and global levels. It was produced to meet demand from GEF recipient countries for capacity building on knowledge exchange and learning, as well as in-country knowledge exchange workshops.
“The Art of Knowledge Exchange” guidebook highlights a variety of case studies and examples of successful knowledge exchange embedded in GEF projects, as well as lessons learned from implementing these initiatives for enhanced global environmental impact. It is the product of collaboration across the GEF Partnership, offering a practical step-by-step blueprint with illustrative examples on how to design, implement, and monitor knowledge exchange embedded in projects. Good practice and case study contributions were made by the World Bank Group (WBG), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and the GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP).
